Delhi Metro Rail Corporation

  • Operational Network of 373 km comprising 271 stations
  • Daily ridership of around 2.7 million
  • Recognised as world’s first and only 100 per cent ‘green’ metro system

The Delhi Metro has been instrumental in ushering in a new era in the sphere of mass urban transportation in India. The swanky and modern Metro system introduced comfortable, air conditioned and eco-friendly services for the first time in India and completely revolutionized the mass transportation scenario not only in the National Capital Region but the entire country.

Having constructed a massive network of 373 Km with 271 stations in record time, the DMRC today stands out as a shining example of how a mammoth technically complex infrastructure project can be completed before time and within budgeted cost by a Government agency.
